Parge, Alma (27 AUG 1904 – 26 SEP 1965)

Mrs. Otto Parge, 61, route 2, Athens, was pronounced dead on arrival at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Marshfield, early Sunday morning, September 26, 1965, after the car she was driving had crashed head-on into a car being driven by Edward J. Weyne, 23, route 2, Withee.

She was a resident of the town of Johnson in the Milan area.

The collision took place shortly after midnight Sunday morning, about two miles east of Abbotsford on highway 29.

Marathon County police stated that Mrs. Parge was traveling east and Weyne was headed west, when Mrs. Parge drove over to the left side of the road, when the crash occurred. The cars rested on the north shoulder of the road following the impact.

Mrs. Parge suffered a fractured left arm and internal injuries, which proved fatal. She was taken to the hospital by an Abbotsford ambulance, where she was pronounced dead.

Weyne sustained only minor cuts and scratches. Both cars were total wrecks.
